Furlough Autos

Original message posted by Ken Enneper on 04-01-07.

Is there a need for suppling autos for missionaries coming back on furlough? how many are on furlough at any given time? furlough autos is a support service i am trying find out if there is need for. thank you for your help

Reply by Bianca on 04-02-07.

Yes, there is! I am a missionary on home leave right now and it's a major need. For example, I'm driving a temporary car right now but it's not a very reliable option (can't take it out of town, etc). I and other missionaries like myself always need cars during our furloughs. My large church usually hosts an annual convention that alot of us missionaries (10-15 at a time) come back for, and it's always a struggle to find transportation. There are only so many people who are willing to let us borrow cars, and usually not for more than a couple weeks. I wouldn't be able to dialogue directly with you in the future on logistics but there are people in place in my church who probably would. By the way, we are located in Virginia Beach, VA...where are you located? Bianca

Reply by Monica Bell on 04-24-07.

Yes, me also, We will be returning back to the states (Virgina) in July and will need something for 8 months before returning back to Africa. Message to Bianca, If you know any state side mission housing in Virgina can you let me know. Thanks Monica

Ken, Blessings to you!!! I am in the process of starting up a ministry to provide support for missionaries. One of the things I was looking to connect them with upon return to the States is use of a vehicle. I would love to know more about what you do and discuss possibly incorporating your service into our program when and where possible. Monica & Bianca, If you could tell me what other resources you would need returning from long term or full time missions, I would appreciate it. God has really put a burden in my heart for the Body to take better care of those on the front lines. It is just beginning (resource information gathering) but by God's grace maybe there is something I can do to help. Blessings, Robyn

Reply by Joshua Jones on 07-05-07.

Robyn, as you set out to help missionaries, we'd certainly love some help editing this website. Drop me a note if you'd like to discuss more about how we could plug you in.
God bless!

Oh, Ken, I wish you already had this ministry going! We are missionaries planning on going home on furlough in just 10 days and still do not have a car! We have been searching, and the ONE place that we thought could rent us a car fell through. It's hard because we have to have a car big enough for 7 people. May the Lord bless you in your ministry and if anyone out there knows of a place we can rent a van cheaply for 7 months, please let me know! In His Service, Melody

Reply by Another Ken on 07-29-07.

This is a good place to ask. They lease automobiles to missionaries on furlough. Missionary Tech Team is a good organization. they have been doing it a few years.

Reply by Teresa D. on 08-03-07.

I think this is great, thanks Ken for starting this discussion. I am a full time missionary, I have been in ministry for 5 years. Florida has been my home base now for about a year, and I just got back from my overseas, and I'm in need of a vehicle. I mostly go overseas during summer. I have been using a car, but starting tueday, I will be on my bike for transportation. Im in desperate need. I know God will provide according to His will.

What a God directed Ministry!! I am coming Stateside in Sept... to St. Louis but visiting several states in 3 weeks... have to purchase Grey Hound tickets and then still rely on pastors and family to drive me around to my meetings.. A car would be wonderful.. Let me know if this is up and running by then!!! actually let me know I need to purchase the bus ticket in the next week to get the best deal on prices. Thank you... and we are Praying for you from Mexico!

Reply by Jim And Becky White on 08-16-07.

We are looking for a vehicle to use while home on furlough. we will be needed a vehicle from october 16, 2007 until february 12,2008. thank for any help.

Reply by Richard R. on 10-23-07.

We have also found this to be a great need for us. We manage to get back to the States from Germany about one month each year in January (Florida) and struggle every time to find transportation. Rental car rates wreck our budget. Thanks for stirring up interest in this important topic.

Reply by Sandra Trees on 11-05-07.

This ministry would be wonderful!! My husband and I just returned from a 4 month furlough and the "car" situation was very discouraging. Finding someone to loan you a car is like finding a needle in a haystack. We are based out of Minnesota. Anyway, you have all our votes that YES this is a VERY big need.

Reply by Charlie Frink on 11-06-07.

We are planning a furlough from NZ in March 2008, and are starting the hunt for a vehicle. We would like to land in CA and drive across the US, so if you have any contacts in the LA area, it would be most appreciated! This is a very big need for missionaries!

My wife and I are in Indonesia serving as teacher trainers. We will be flying into the Chattanooga, Tennessee area during April We need cheap accomodation for a period of two week. Any suggestions, Thank you! Paul

Reply by Tony on 03-08-09.

We are missionaries and do know the need of a car. Once, when we borrowed a car from a relative, we paid the car insurance. Can be the added cost of a new driver. It does made some people more comfortable in lending. Are there any insurance brokers that do give big discounts as part of their ministry. Any used car dealers that rent cars at insurance rates only as per ministry. Car donations to church or ministry for car lending? Need a car that we can pickup in Columbia or Atlanta area for 40 days, [late Mar-April]. Thank you , Tony

Reply by Bev Smith on 03-16-09.

We have found the best place to buy a reliable vehicle is through Mission Auto Connection. We found that you can pretty much sell it for the same a year later. Pull up their website. They have volunteers who will often drive the vehicle to you and you pay their ticket back to Ohio. We are in need for a 2 month rental this time. We heard there were some organizations that does that for missionaries.

Reply by Heather on 03-31-09.

Anyone know of any organisations/ ministrys of this sort that operate in Canada??

Reply by Selia on 08-07-09.

I am excited to have found your website. I have returned to Virginia Beach after a 2-year arts missions' trip stateside (Philadelphia, PA). I am in need of a vehicle and housing in Virginia Beach (Tidewater) area. Please let me know if you are aware of both. These are both needed immediately. God richly bless you in this awesome ministry.

Reply by Rachel on 08-12-09.

Great need...6 days and we need something for our family of 6 in NC! Great ministry idea...keep up the good work. For Heather, I just came across this online and wished I was headed to Canada...hope it helps! Rachel

We are long-term missionaries coming back to the US from Africa the end of January 2010 for 3 months. We are in need of a vehicle. Our blog is to read more about what we do. This is a wonderful ministry and one that is needed. We usually borrow or rent a car and it is difficult and expensive! We'll be praying for you! Please let us know if you have your ministry running yet. Thank you and may God bless you abundantly as you step out in faith in His service! God's blessings, Denise and Rob Miller

A couple of years ago, some friends and I started a 501(c)3 to work on addressing missionary furlough needs(Righteous Rides). We currently have 20 late model vehicles in the fleet. This thread appears to have going for some time... but for anyone interested in this topic feel free to contact me at I'd love to share lessons learned that would help improve the church's support of missionaries.

Hello, We are Eric and Carla Hargis. Our family was lead by the Lord to start a vehicle ministry for Independent Fundamental Baptist Missionaries and missionaries of like faith. We started in April of 2007 and currentyly have 40 vehicles to offer. We are booked up for most of 2010, well into 2011 and even into 2013. You can visit our web site at to see more about us. Our vehicles are leased to the missionary with full coverage insurance and a maintenance plan. The missionary is responsible for certain maintenance items, for all tickets incurred along with any deductibles required for repairs. Eric is still employed at a fulltime job of 41 to 49 hours per week. Our family currently operates this ministry alone, with the support of two churches. We are looking into the possibility of housing in the future. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
